LIGHTHOUSE COOPERATIVE

Chicharabao

Product Description:

Chicharabao is chicharon made of carabao skin instead of the usual pork skin. It is as crispy and chewy yet less health threatening than the pork variety. As such, it has become the snack of choice for the health conscious who at times crave for this favorite Pinoy crunchy. Chicharabao is produced by Carne Ybanag, one of the four business units of the Lighthouse Cooperative, and the Best DOST SETUP Adopter of Region II for 2012. This recognition came after availing SETUP assistance twice – first in 2006 to upgrade processing and packaging/labeling of its processed meat products, and again in 2009 to upgrade its Chicharabao production.
